Key Cloud Computing Requirements as Set Forth by Regulatory Bodies
The key concerns regulated financial institutions face are those related to data privacy, data and systems security, business continuity and disaster recovery, and liability/risk management. While federal regulatory bodies have been clear about technology service requirements, many IT teams have complained these compliances do not help achieve cloud computing best practices.
Forward Moving Steps to a Cloud Computing Strategy
In order to move forward with a cloud computing solution, financial institutions must understand the information security risks, customer privacy concerns and strategy behind selecting the optimal cloud computing solution for their enterprise.
Types of Remote Access Solutions Suitable for Financial Institutions
Before selecting a single cloud computing solution, financial institutions must be familiar with individual enterprise needs along with the various functionalities and critical components of cloud solutions.
In addition to clarifying cloud computing concerns, the e-paper also explores the benefits of remote access technologies and offers useful tips about the use of cloud solutions.
“In today’s business environment, cloud computing is a necessary feature for financial institutions to implement,” says Klaus Brandstätter, CEO of HOB. “As the benefits of cloud computing increase, these solutions will only become more optimized for the financial services industry.
